> I think we should enable setDiscountOverlaps in DefaultSimilarity by default.
> If you are using synonyms or commongrams or a number of other 0-posInc-term-injecting
methods, these currently screw up your length normalization.
> These terms have a position increment of zero, so they shouldnt count towards the length
of the document.
> I've done relevance tests with persian showing the difference is significant, and i think
its a big trap to anyone using synonyms, etc: your relevance can actually get worse if you
don't flip this boolean flag.
